An increasing number of people are questioning the meaning of their lives and work. They want to know that their lives and work truly matter and that they are making a positive and meaningful difference -- to themselves, for others, and even for the larger community or society.
The Global Meaning Institute is the leading provider of programs focused on Meaning. All programs are held in person because, after all, these are programs about the human quest for Meaning. These programs are specially customized for specific clients, and are designed to introduce participants to basic MEANINGology® concepts, a unique philosophy and formula for Meaning, practical tools & techniques, and the proprietary MEANINGology® Meaning Tests. The overall goal is for you to access deeper meaning, to be inspired to reach your full potential, ...and truly make a difference in your life, work, and society.
Leaders: Dr. Alex Pattakos or Elaine Dundon, founders of the Global Meaning Institute, international bestselling authors and thought leaders, with years of experience in leadership, strategy, personal transformation, innovation management, business, government, and meaning. Their goal is to take the complex topic of Meaning, demystify it, and make it more accessible so that you can find more meaning in your everyday life and work. Ultimately, their mission is "to help people succeed and thrive through meaning." (If Alex Pattakos and Elaine Dundon are not available for a specific program or on a specific day, then a talented, senior associate at the Global Meaning Institute facilitates the program.)
The Global Meaning Institute is leading the Meaning Revolution with three Meaning Tests:
The MEANINGology® Meaning Tests were developed by Dr. Alex Pattakos and Elaine Dundon based on their pioneering work in the field of Meaning. Their typology is built upon a new paradigm and formula for discovering meaning in life and work, as well as the discovery that each person approaches and finds meaning via a specific MEANINGology® Style.
These tests have been designed to provide an overview of your current level of thinking/feeling regarding the state of meaning in your life or work, as well as to help you identify areas where you can deepen meaning in your life or work. For leaders, the Meaning Tests also identify how to make meaning a group-wide or organization-wide initiative that drives engagement & resilience, health & well-being, and performance & innovation.
Each test includes comparative scores in the different elements of Meaning and an individualized MEANINGology Style®. The Global Meaning Institute has collected normative data to be used as statistical benchmarks or points of comparison in the different elements of Meaning for personal growth, leadership development, and organizational transformation. These tests, which are available both online and in hardcopy formats, are integrated into the customized education programs.
